  1. Can't go this year. Love to see everyone.
  2. I would just enjoy the 1wd.
  3. I had an early 90s Mt11 that I loved dearly. Simple engines. Flatheads are very old and few/far between. Ohv are good, but hard to find any that aren't tainted or messed up due to owner ignorance. One dialed in ohv are good. As said before, not fast bikes. Good for around town and on two lanes. 45 mph is a safe speed. 65 you should say some prayers. From an engineering and design standpoint, much better bikes than Urals. I'll get another one day.
  4. Nice example of a great bike. Good luck with the sale.
  5. Oh those tanks. I think they threw them off a cliff before on the bikes. Looking good buddy
  6. Thanks Sam, someone has to worry about me. Lol. Everyone else just enables it.
  7. Cool. My girl got loaded up for Chicago the day before last. It was sad seeing it in a trailer. She started right up and was ready to go. She was a good one. A friend in Canada is in Russia as of yesterday and will help to find a car. He said a lot of the Canadian cars are rotten if found or people want too much. Seems the same here as far as pricing. Which is good if I wanted to sell it.
  8. I think so. He's still getting shipping quotes. Should be leaving soon. Looking at importing a Lada or maybe a LuAZ. I'm crazy I know
  9. Take off the wheel. Undo the damper and keep in order. Undo the top caps and then loosen the pinch bolts and lube and remove.
  10. Mine has the Aluminum knob bolt that threads into a threaded hole in the toolbox. Probably the easiest route since they did it on mine originally. Lol
  11. Look at my build thread or my Dnepr for sale. You can see how it fits
  12. Own a piece of history from the Legend. Can't go wrong with Rich's works.
  13. Thanks Luca, has been a great bike and a wonderful build. Very fun.
  14. Dnpr1 CRAP Rally by mrogers2009, on Flickr I am selling my baby. Those of you that know me and have seen the bike (CRAPPERS), feel free to chime in. Muzzleflash, you still took the best pic, thanks. I am going to post it on CL and possibly ebay as well. I will give first dibs on RI and SS members. Had a hard time pricing it as there's no real comparisons. Here's the post I am going to use on CL, but edited for you all that are well-informed. The CL ad will be geared a little toward laymen. Here we go: Beautiful Dnepr MT-11 restored to resemble a 60s/70s K650. I have owned the bike for six years and completed the restoration in 2015. It has been a labor of love for these bikes since I got interested in 2002. I purchased the bike from a reputable flat twin motorcycle legend in SW NC, who sorted out the major mechanicals. The rest of the work/maintenance was done personally since 2011 (with some help of course). You will probably not find another Dnepr this nice or well cared for in the United States (true not wheeler dealer talk). Runs, shifts, and handles well and as it should. Later style motor with factory electric start and spin-on oil filter. Electrical was all gone through, cleaned, and simplified/updated. K68 carbs have been sorted and updated with Kohler needle. Every inch of the bike was completely stripped of the Russian paint and primer before bodywork/painting. Tires are in great shape (even USSR spare). Clean NC title in hand (titled as 1973). Work and highlights: Custom fabricated ammo can and gas can mount, with French wine can Sidecar seat was professionally recovered L424 alternator Updated coil /condenser – big blue spark Bosch plug wires ATC fuse block and wire connectors upgrade Odyssey dry-cell battery Custom starter switch Chrome mirror Sidecar brake installed Steel leg guards Single stage urethane paint (color matched from a period Soviet canteen) – Epoxy primed. Misc. seals and parts from Leszek Lyzwinski (Oldtimer Garage, Poland) Sourced parts for K650 style: Tool box fuel tank (sourced from FL) Custom sculpted/molded KMZ key Headlight with gauge (sourced from Ukraine) – MT-11 key, warning light, and ignition conversion Military Headlight cover/blind Taillights and sidecar marker light (sourced from Ukraine) Here is my build thread and Flickr links:http://www.sovietste...php?f=5&t=37834 https://flic.kr/s/aHskuDL3BQ $7,000
  15. Great seller. Not too chatty, but you get what you pay for. Nice stuff.
